General French Evening Course

Cours d'expression orale


Spring / Fall



Required levels




General French evening courses are designed to help students progress quickly in their mastery of the language through structured teaching, which reinforces grammar, vocabulary and communication skills, both spoken and written. One of the main advantages of these courses is of course its adaptability to the schedules of international students who may sometimes work part-time jobs, attend daytime classes or other commitments. Evening classes allow them to combine their French studies with their busy schedule. General French evening courses are relatively intensive, meaning that students will progress at a rapid pace. This allows international students to reach a certain level of proficiency in a limited period of time. These courses are also structured to meet the individual needs of students. Whether you want to focus more on oral, written, or professional skills, CCFS teachers will meet your needs effectively. Evening classes often bring together international students from diverse backgrounds, providing an ideal opportunity to interact with people from different cultures. For international students planning to live in France for higher education, employment or other reasons, general French evening classes provide an excellent preparation. It promotes faster integration into French society by improving mastery of the language, the ability to communicate and understand French culture.
